An excellent and moody piece
2 March 2006 | by genedigennaroSee all my reviews

I recently saw this film on NASA's television service. Unlike most NASA documentaries this is not your typical dry look at Apollo. Instead, we get a great philosophical look at the importance of humankind's first steps on another body. For the most part, the film avoids the usual pablum of Woodstock, Vietnam, hippies etc. The moods invoked by the film are indeed introspective.The spooky electronic soundtrack adds to the moodiness.

Only now that the Apollo program has been regulated to the history books has the mainstream media finally accepted Apollo as an important event in human history. For far too long it was a footnote in the pages of the 1960s with too much attention given to the hippie movement and Woodstock.

My only complaint is that this film seems to be unavailable to the general public. I believe that this is one of the finest movies ever released on the Apollo program.
